Andrew Kim

Andrew Kim is a filmmaker whose work involves the tension that exists between magic and science as suggested by analogue filmmaking and various photochemical processes. In his films, the mechanics of motion pictures are employed to understand abstract concepts, feelings, and ideas. With a concern for expanding the documentary form, Andrew attempts to find ways for film to articulate a new kind of knowledge.    

His films have screened at a variety of venues and festivals including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Festival du Nouveau Cinema (Montreal), Images Festival (Toronto), BAFICI (Buenos Aries), UnionDocs, and Los Angeles Filmforum, among others. Andrew lives in Los Angeles, California. There he is a staff member at the Echo Park Film Center and teaches film production at the California Institute of the Arts.
